How I Wear My Jeans – Street Style

Jeans are a popular casual wardrobe staple for women over 40. But just how you wear them can set you apart from the rest of the crowd. Take a look at how these Fabulous After 40 readers wear their favorite denim.

Boyfriend Style

Classic and Pretty

boyfriend-jeans-and-heelsAna has gone for a more classic look. She’s dressed up her jeans by pairing them with cute cardigan that has an embellished collar, and lady-like pumps.

You can see more of Ana’s over 40 style in her She’s Got the Look feature here on Fabulous After 40.


 Jackets add Polish

Colored Denim is Fresh and Fun
